    ASTM D3288 / D3288M

    Significance and Use

    These tests are useful for specification and control purposes during the manufacture, purchase, and use of the magnet-wire enamels, and for determining uniformity of batches.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover testing liquid enamel coatings used to produce film-insulated magnet wire.

    1.2 The values stated in either lbs/gal or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard.

    1.3 The test methods appear as follows:

    Sections
    Density 6-10
    Determined Solids16-22
    Effective Solids31-37
    Flash Point11-15
    Infrared Analysis42-47
    Stack Loss23-30
    Viscosity38-41

    1.4 There is no known IEC equivalent document.

    1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
